GREENBURGH, NY. -- A 27-year-old from Redding, Conn., surrendered to Greenburgh police on Friday on a felony assault charge related to a beating that took place on New Year's Day, police said.
Elwood Nesser of 108 Sport Hill Road in Redding appeared at Greenburgh Police Headquarters with his attorney.
Nesser was charged with one count of second-degree assault, a Class D felony. He was arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court before Judge Delores Braithwaite and released on $25,000 bond. He is due for another Town Court appearance on Friday Feb. 13.
The arrest stems from an incident at 1:10 a.m. Jan. 1 when Greenburgh police responded to an assault in the parking lot of 77 Knollwood Road, White Plains. Officers found a 39-year-old male who suffered head trauma after being struck numerous times with a blunt instrument.
The initial investigation determined that the victim was at a New Year's Eve party hosted by the Royal Palace Restaurant, 77 Knollwood Road. Shortly after leaving the party, the victim was attacked by at least two suspects with a blunt instrument, police said. The victim sustained head trauma and was hospitalized.
Capt. Brian J. Ryan, commander of the Detective Division, said an investigation led to Nesser as a suspect in the assault.
